    Hi,
    I've watched friends with iPads and Galaxies play around and use their tablets for everything under the sun, and thought it looked like fun. I'm a serious PC user (not techie) but like the idea of android. So I gave in to impulse and got an ASUS eeePad Transformer, as it seemed to cover what I thought I would want and need. But I didn't allow for the apparent fact that there's nothing written out there about how to get started using Android apps. I can move the icons around, but that palls as entertainment after awhile. I tried plugging in a USB with my e-books on it, and it read them just fine, but it wouldn't upload them. So I have to keep the pad docked to the keyboard (where the USB plug is) in order to use it as a reader - NOT ideal. And I couldn't seem to get to first base with any of the other on-board apps either. Where do I go from here?
    Or I could take it back (by Friday is the take-back limit) and stick to my PC and early Kobo...
    Any suggestions would be very welcome, with thanks in advance!
    -Veronica

    Hi Veronica, what exactly are you looking to do or make happen? Android OS is very intuitive & customizable. There's lots of things to do on Android. For instance, Android does have widgets and much customization to peek your interest.
